Listening to entries on fellow funkateers‘ „Best of 2015“ lists made me realize that I missed several great new albums last year. My instant favorite was „Back in Time“, the October release by Judith Hill whose funky soul adds justification to her middle name „Glory“. Her debut was produced by Prince who has a spotty history with regard to picking female protegées who are worth of his musical genius and whose own talents equal their looks.

With Judith, Prince apparently found the perfect match. „Back in Time“ contains many of the elements which I liked during Prince’s heyday (and I am not a full-fledged fan – I am not to keen on many of his greatest non-funky hits; e. g., „Purple Rain“ and „Let’s Get Crazy“). It has raw funk, sultry soul (without the „sexcesses“ we are used to), irresistible grooves, punchy horns annd intricate arrangements.

DUST IT OFF: Parliament’s „Mothership Connection“…40 Years Later

leave a comment »

From the moment I heard these fictitious radio DJ’s in “P-Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)”, I couldn’t stop listening. I had never heard a radio show recreated in song, and this voice speaking from the unknown was a place I wanted to visit, it sounded like someone I could trust. There were three characters in the song: the unknown mellow man, the high-speed voice known as Lollipop Man (a/k/a The Long Haired Sucker), and the laid back man who dominates the song talking about doing it to you in your earhole and discovering people in the southern part of the United States lived bands like the Doobie Brothers, Blue Magic, and David Bowie.

For no reason a‘ all: My tribute to London pub rock duo Chas & Dave

with one comment

I am predominantly into ‚black music‘ (resp., for the more politically correct readers, into funk, soul, hip-hop, blues, and gospel), plus gutsy and/or soulful country.

But there also are other kinds of artists, which – to me – are the musical equivalent of ‚comfort food‘. For many decades, I have been loving Chas & Dave – since „Ain’t No Pleasing You“ (1982) …

Momentaufnahme im Hbf. Hamburg: Refugees welcome

with 2 comments

Als ich vorhin gegen 23.15 Uhr nach einem Berlin-Trip im Hamburger Hauptbahnhof ankam, beeindruckte mich das Ausmaß, in dem sich selbst zu nachtschlafender Zeit freiwillige (nehme ich mal an) Helfer um Flüchtlinge kümmerten.
Momentaufnahme im Hauptbahnhof: Hamburg und die Flüchtlinge
Es hingen Schilder aus, unter denen sich Reisende zu Zielländern wie Schweden, Norwegen und Finnland sammeln konnten. Essen war verfügbar, und wohl auch ein Arzt. Es wurde die Information vermittelt, dass Flüchtlinge mit Ausnahme des ICE kein Bahnticket bräuchten. Im ICE sei das Verhandlungssache, darüber müsse mit dem Zugführer gesprochen werden.

The Complete New Funk Times P.Funk History Double Issue 4/5 from 1990

with 2 comments

Rolling Stone Magazine has just published the story „Doctor Atomic“ about my favorite funk musician George Clinton (issue #1234, cover date: May 7, 2015). They printed a photo I took during my 1986 home story on George’s Funky Farm and the cover of the P.Funk History Double Issue of the P.Funk newsletter New Funk Times which I used to publish from the late ’80s to early ’90s, with permission of George Clinton.

The NFT website has been hacked quite a while ago and I haven’t had the time yet to bring it back. Therefore I am using my personal blog to post scans of the issue you see in Rolling Stone – with cartoons by Pedro Bell, Overton Loyd and Howard Priestley. Enjoy!
